Mike Hinge 072

Mike Hinge - Cryogenics Capsule 5. Marker pen on white paper. Approximate size 60x70cm. Date unknown. Unigned.

A thought has just occurred to me, according to Jane Frank's excellent book "A biographical Dictionary Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists ofthe Twentieth Century."  Jane mentions that Mike Hinge designed a cryobionic unit for Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, which unfortunately wasn't used. Could this picture and the other 4 pictures of the Cryogenics capsule be part of that project?
